. microsoft, 87% of its cash. cisco. oracle at 80%. apple at 68%. google at 64%. that's important to note. the reason why these companies have so much cash overseas is that they've been global growth stories. when microsoft sells product overseas the proceeds go into accounts over there. don't come to the u.s. unless microsoft needs to buy something here. you can see it plays out in a company like apple, too, where international launches and international retail expansion have become far more important than the u.s. where growth is concerned. just five years ago apple had 58% of its cash in the u.s. this is actually a big issue for a company like cisco where john chambers has been very straightforward about saying if the federal government lets us repay treeuate this cash, bring it to the u.s. without a big penalty, we'll use it to hire and grow in this country. if not we'll hire less and, by the way, keep making bigger overseas acquisitions, too. all of this gets a bit dicier when you consider a lot of u.s. companies have gotten pretty good at avoiding tax on international sales by using

mean the ability it find surprises. every month or every year i google a little bit about some show people are talking about that i don't think you could have ever imagined choosing. because say i i want you to choose honey boo-boo or the show with the dark guy or a certain food channel network. i don't think if i had to predetermine that was my preference i would ever pick them. but the ability to stumble on them or hear people talking about them and let me go into an environment and go dabbling around i sort of like honey boo-boo and now i'm watching that. that is a huge part of the american television experience and i think it is sold short when you get to talking about any time, anywhere, now. i do still think a lot of americans love the enjoyment of escaping and passivity and being able to roam around the tv jungle finding things they didn't know were there. >> michael powell on the future of television tonight on "the communicators" on c-span 2. >> this week, crystal wright, editor and publisher of the internet blog site, conservativeblackchick.com. >> crystal wright, why did
